Re: ignition timing with vac gauge

My vac gauge is on the inlet manifold being an RB to CB conversion. I don't think you will get the correct results taking the reading from the carbs. I've read on another forum where they didn't use a vac just twisted the dist until they got the best tickover - disconnect the dist vac first and plug...

Re: Rear springs MGB roadster
